Conceptual Art in Britain 1964-1979 will show how artists working in Britain transformed the nature of art. This exhibition will trace the course of this pivotal movement from its origins in the mid-1960s through to the late 1970s, bringing together 70 works by 21 artists including Richard Long, Barry Flanagan, Mary Kelly, Keith Arnatt, Bruce McLean and Susan Hiller. The exhibition will demonstrate the radical, thought-provoking and politically-engaged nature of this defining period in art history, positioning conceptual art not as a style but rather a game-changing shift in the way we think about art, how it is made and what it is for.
